Toronto Reborn


An incisive view of Toronto’s development over the last fifty years.

In Toronto Reborn, Ken Greenberg describes how the contours of a new Toronto can be seen. Focusing on the period from 1970 to the present, the book looks at how the work and decisions of citizens, NGOs, businesses, and governments have all combined to refashion Toronto.

Individually and collectively, their actions — renovating buildings and neighbourhoods, building startling new structures and urban spaces, revitalizing old cultural institutions and creating new ones, and sponsoring new festivals and events — have transformed the old postwar city, changing it into an exciting modern one.

Toronto, grafting itself onto old foundations, is experiencing a kind of rebirth — arising vertically above its old self.
